I just returned from a 6 day stay at the Figeroa. It is a charming middle eastern styled hotel. In short, I enjoyed my stay there. The hotel is an old building with pretty much everything inside old as well. The bathroom fixtures are old, the closet has old style hooks (the kind some of us used to use in elementary school). Regardless, the hotel is still very charming and attractive.
The Fig does not provide the latest and greatest amenities. For instance, the TV has only 15 (or so) channels. I wanted to watch the baseball playoffs but those channels were not available at this hotel. The hotel staff told me that I could purchase wireless internet service (I did not). The room door locks use metal keys as opposed to the electronic cards that are in vogue today. There was no iron/ironing board available in the room.
The room was spotless and maintained that way by the hotel staff.
I found the front desk staff to be pleasant and cooperative.
The hotel is located a short walk from the LA Convention Center, the Nokia Theater, and the Staples Center. There are a number of restaurants in the immediate vicinity of the Staples Center which is about a 5 minute walk from the Fig. The Metro (the subway in LA) is a few minutes walk from the Fig. The subway is clean, safe, and runs frequently.
I did not use the Fig's restaurant as their menu is very limited. A number of people did eat there and I never heard any complaints.
All in all, the Fig was a very pleasant and enjoyable experience for me. If you're willing to do without the finer amenities you will enjoy your stay here.
